    If u do just the spindle in the front and stock rear u will be level. If u do the moog coils and the spacer u will have just a small rear rake with stock rear. These 5 lugs take a bit to level

    Hi I'm new in the site but I want to share this mod that many I will make to my 2003 taco . Put a NRG hub , quick realease and steering wheel.

    I know probably will ask why and I did it because the airbag was damage and it was dangerous to have it on , no crash or something similar it was just damage for some reason that I don't know .

    And the other reason was for safety about some one trying to steal my truck again

    I will put a 5 point harness for extra safety

    Hope you guys like it and I will make a post update the progress of my truck if someone have any advice .

    FIBRA !

    Yes I did it! It’s a little thing but makes the taco that much more comfortable. I put the switch where the little coin holder is on the center console and it’s a perfect fit. The mirrors bolt on and if I remember correctly there is one tab that needs to be removed

    Funny you ask I was just looking at doing that last week I was comparing the diagrams not sure how possible it is and also the 4Runner modules can be problematic so would be best to get a rebuilt one

    Definitely going to get it rebuilt. I think it would be a cool mod. Let me know what you find out. I'm going to help a buddy install a head unit and I was going to take a picture of the plugs for the a/c. Then I was going to compare it when I upgraded my radio. If it's not possible I will give it to my buddy so he can install it in his runner.
